Ross, Wendy; Vallée-Tourangeau, Frédéric – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2021
Qualitative research on creativity often highlights the role of accidents in creative process, but there is little research that takes these as its main topic. Perhaps because a model that relies on accidents undermines the meaningfulness of creativity; perhaps because the phenomenon itself is too complex to underwrite an entire research program.…

Ekroll, Vebjørn; Svalebjørg, Mats; Pirrone, Angelo; Böhm, Gisela; Jentschke, Sebastian; van Lier, Rob; Wagemans, Johan; Høye, Alena – Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, 2021
The purpose of the present note is to draw attention to the potential role of a recently discovered visual illusion in creating traffic accidents. The illusion consists in a compelling and immediate experience that the space behind an occluding object in the foreground is empty. Although the illusion refers to a region of space, which is invisible…

Lanagan-Leitzel, Lyndsey K. – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2021
Do lifeguards monitor events according to the level of danger they pose to the patron? This study examined this question by displaying 40 min of video of natural swimming activity to three lifeguards while an eye-tracker recorded their eye position. In a separate session, those same lifeguards viewed 100 short video clips of some of the incidents…

Dodier, Olivier; Ginet, Magali; Teissedre, Frédérique; Verkampt, Fanny; Fisher, Ronald P. – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2021
This study examined the relevance of the cognitive interview (CI) for the recall of a road accident by actual victims, depending on the level of stress experienced at the time of the event. Fifty-six victims (or witnesses) were interviewed, either with a CI or control interview, after completing a series of questionnaires including measures of…

Mutzenich, Clare; Durant, Szonya; Helman, Shaun; Dalton, Polly – Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, 2021
The introduction of autonomous vehicles (AVs) could prevent many accidents attributable to human driver error. However, even entirely driverless vehicles will sometimes require remote human intervention. Current taxonomies of automated driving do not acknowledge the possibility of remote control of AVs or the challenges that are unique to such a…

Murphy, Victoria L.; Littlejohn, Allison; Rienties, Bart – Journal of Workplace Learning, 2022
Purpose: Learning from incidents (LFI) is an organisational process that high-risk industries use following an accident or near-miss to prevent similar events. Literature on the topic has presented a fragmented conceptualisation of learning in this context. This paper aims to present a holistic taxonomy of the different aspects of LFI from the…

Wulff, Alia N.; Hyman, Ira E., Jr. – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2022
People do not constantly watch for accidents and crimes. With their attention focused elsewhere, potential witnesses may fail to notice a crime and experience inattentional blindness. We investigated the impact of inattentional blindness on eyewitness awareness and memory. Participants watched a video in which a theft occurs. We manipulated the…

Laxton, Victoria; Crundall, David; Guest, Duncan; Howard, Christina J. – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2021
How does domain expertise influence dynamic visual search? Previous studies of visual search often use abstract search arrays that are devoid of applied context, with comparatively few studies exploring applied naturalistic and dynamic settings. The current research adds to this literature by examining lifeguard drowning-detection across two…
